The deep and abiding reality – the reality we do not invent, the reality we really have to cope with – is that we are interconnected beings born in and for community.
If that is true, and surely it is, then leadership is everyone’s vocation, and it is an evasion to claim that it is not. When we live in the close-knit ecosystem called community, everyone follows and everyone leads. Leadership, I now understand, simply comes with the territory called being human.
This is a polarity! Both are true.
Acknowledge the tension, need to balance.
We are a covenantal faith, not a creedal faith.
We share a covenant of how we try to be together, not a creed of what we all must believe together.
